PALM AIRE GOLF - The Cypress Course (954-978-1737)
Florida Golf Course Review
Palm Aire in Pompano Beach has been described as South Florida's most complete golf experience. On property are 4 golf courses, 2 full service
clubhouses with pro shops, 2 golf schools, 2 restaurants, banquet and outing facilities, and over 30 tennis courts. Practice facilities include 2 driving
ranges, 4 practice greens, 2 short game areas and a four-hole practice loop. Since 1994, over $14,000,000 has been invested to renovate the golf
courses and amenities. The Oaks and Cypress Courses are serviced by one clubhouse, and the Palms and Sabals by another. All four courses are open
for public play for daily fee and for group outings.
Palm Aire has hosted numerous prestigious tournaments including the Florida Open, Dixie Amateur Championship, and Nike Tour's South Florida Classic.
The Oaks and Cypress layouts are regarded among the finest 36 holes of golf in the tri-county area. The courses provide yardage blocks on the fairways,
sprinkler heads that are measured to the center of the green, plus color coded flags to indicate the days pin placement.
The Cypress is renowned as one of the areas most beautiful and challenging courses in South Florida - and is our webmaster's favorite design of the 5 at
Palm Aire. Meandering fairways framed by tropical landscaping and crystal clear lakes compliment the gently undulating grees and powdery bunkering of
this spectacular layout. The Cypress and Oaks clubhouse features a dining room and lounge that can accommodate up to 100 guests, plus the Cypress
and Magnolia banquet rooms that can facilitate large or intimate functions.
As past host to the Florida Open, Dixie Amateur and Men's Broward Amateur Championships, the Cypress features finely manicured conditions from tee to
green. Tom and George Fazio designed the course in 1972, providing elevated greens, strategic bunkering and fairways that are lined with beautiful palms
and cypress trees. Five sets of tees here play to distance and slopes measuring 6808 yards/144 slope, 6515 yards/137 slope, 6131 yards/134 slope,
5405 yards/122 slope, and 5214 yards from the forward tees with a slope of 127 for the ladies. As the slope ratings indicate - this is a premier golf
experience, with Fazio-like risk reward opportunities amply available. The average player will find a good game from the middle tees - though all three back
tees provide a challenging experience. Shot placement is just as important as distance on this beautiful layout.
Palm Aire is conveniently located off Florida's Turnpike near the Atlantic Blvd exit north of Ft Lauderdale and south of Palm Beach, and is also easily
accessible from I-95 at exit 33. For more information, visit our page for the Cypress Course with a direct link to the Palm Aire website by clicking here.
